Have there been any new rumors, anything?
Topics regarding layoffs at West Corp.
Can anyone describe what the experience was like, what exactly happened? I'm pretty sure I'm slated to be cut and would like to know what to expect. Did your immediate supervisor send you a meeting invitation and that was the first you knew of it?... — read more
If you aren't happy at West / Intrado....QUIT. Stop spending time posting here and spend more time reading, educating, learning, applying for new jobs and get out of here. We don't need the negative types here any longer. You know the drill and... — read more
You’re just a glutton for punishment. More layoffs, management updates a list consistently with your names. It’s like hunger games. Why do this to yourself? There’s a brighter side on the other end.
Were there layoffs at West or no? I've seen several people post here that there were cuts but there is no info on anything having taken place.
Facing a hurricane and they’ll expect us to maintain our closed call rates
Is the September layoff likely to happen?
How can this company sustain itself with the current “improvements” - apparently by adding more to everyone left and we are already stretched thin. Honestly I’ve never seen anything like it. Our poor customers. No wonder they’re abandoning ship.
Anyone negotiated a salary increase after taking on additional responsibilities? Is there significant pay variance among people on the same team in the same role? How is that pay for performance?
If they only knew. Security of data and the lack of integrity of the company. It is all about the presentation.
For a company that has sunk a lot of money into their training and coaching why is it they won’t move forward in the interview process obviously good qualified people for management roles unless they have at least 5 years of management INCLUDING... — read more
When you think they’ll make us go back to the office?
Tuesday ends the QTR. Expect the layoffs to start today and trickle into tomorrow.
Why are we not getting our performance evaluations. They are due soon. No evaluations means no performance bonuses.
I’m surprised no one has been talking about the 1 million dollars ransomware attack. Or the other viruses that have cause so much turmoil throughout the company. GTS is completely disorganized and floundering, the amount of money being wasted on... — read more
Any upcoming layoffs?
Over the past month Longmont has had at least 5 people with over 10 years tenure leave. People are finally starting to give up and move on.
Our CEO could at least be this honest. https://www.instagram.com/p/B_Dq3PsDxNn/
the last few days HR is running around laying off people in the midst of the Corona virus
Do you think anyone even proposed the idea of pay cuts instead of mass firings? Lots of new executives that can afford to take a temporary salary reduction. I would have been okay with that. Other companies I know have done 20% cuts across the... — read more
Still ongoing. If it wasn’t clear how much Intrado doesn’t care for their employees, it is now.
Know your rights- severance isn’t typically a trade of for your silence. HR is there to protect the company, not you. You don’t have to sign anything and they can’t withhold pay for work performed for any reason. https://candor.co/guides/layoff/ — read more
Are new layoffs likely due to the Coronavirus hit on the market?
Anybody know if Intrado is still the vendor for Directv’s IVR? Through what was West Interactive. Wasn’t sure if after ATT bought Directv they finished going in-house with it or if there actually still is a Directv hub at W100’s 1st floor.
Former Employee here - just heard there is going to be a small re-org in Omaha. I think that they are getting ready to sell off one of the sections of business. The rumors have been going around for a while about selling off Interactive, so... — read more
People are being let go. Open reqs are being closed. Morale is low. More work is being piled on. If you’re not doing the job of 2 or 3 people for pennies you’re not a team player. Apollo is running this into the ground.
Any news about Walmart's contract with West .
Somebody mentioned another round in March - is this true? Where's the info coming from?
Terminate employee, re-post job as "remote", hire worker from Philippines. Rinse. Repeat.
And more lay offs today. Some of the very best people. The bottom line is that Intrado does not care for its people. But by now, that should come as no surprise. When the majority of us are swamped with workloads and asked to take on more.... and we... — read more
Just found out they changed the policy manual on us a month ago and didn’t let anyone know. And it’s big. The old policy manual has an entire page dedicated to severance pay, how much you get, based on how long you’ve been with the company. IT’S GONE... — read more
I am interested in the overall number of employees. Also, please share if you know how many people work at Omaha?
https://markets.businessinsider.com/amp/news/intrado-to-divest-claims-recovery-business-1028708072 Intrado announced that they're selling their Claims Recovery businesses (aka "Accent"). Does anyone who work there know if there's going to be any... — read more
How likely is that there will be West Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
Sweet, more benefits being eroded across NA. Even less reasons to stick around. More expenses will need to be fronted out-of-pocket. So awesome! /sarc
Got an invite this morning for the GTS All-Hands meeting next week. Seems odd. There's no description other than dial-in info, whereas usually there's some spiel about the presentation. Plus, the turnaround seems pretty short; usually, these invites... — read more
I'm hoping yesterday was it...
